The Bromeliad tree has grown since it's debut here on July 30th. Not in the way a tree would normally grow of course, but in the way a dead tree festooned with Bromeliads might.
A trip to the orange big box store produced this beauty.
And the early August houseplant sale at Portland Nursery was my excuse to purchase this curly Tillandsia xerographica.
The first stop on our recent Kitsap Peninsula adventure day was Valley Nursery in Poulsbo, where I fell hard for this dramatic beast.
This little stunner...
And this one — along with several others the camera didn't capture — were all gifts from Alison, gifts which I enthusiastically accepted.
It's Bromeliad madness!
The whole area is looking much more pulled together than the first share back in July.
Oh! Did you notice the long Tillandisa swags in the photo above?
I had a couple of garden visitors back on the 15th, Roger Gossler and plantsman Tim Wright, both very generous men. Roger brought ferns (!) and Tim gifted me these long Tillandsia. I think I may have gasped when I first saw them.
For balance I felt like I needed to add a few more elements to the fern dish planters...
So now they've got Tillandsia and Bromeliads tucked in too...
The only thing I don't like about all this? It's still gonna have to be dismantled come November...
